Why are you seeking therapy?

We all go through difficult times in life, regardless of who we are, where we've been, or what we do.  And these days it seems even harder to get our bearings or feel that we can connect to one another. Here's the deal:  I believe that therapy can help us regain that sense of connection and direction. It can provide us with some much needed support, safety, and encouragement to get through whatever it is that life has decided to throw our way.  More importantly, I believe that therapy can strengthen and increase our self-esteem which seems to be continually knocked down by social media, relationships, and life in general. 

 

I specialize in working with adolescents and adults struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, and life transitions.  As your therapist, we will work together to help bridge the gap of where you are and where you want to be.  I believe therapy is a partnership that has to be a good fit for YOU.  That partnership is essential to you feeling understood, safe, and, ultimately heard.  I want to provide a place for you to be yourself and help dial down the noise so you can begin figuring things out.  Sometimes I think that's all we need to help us resolve what we're going through.

 About Art Therapy
 
So full disclosure:  Yes, I use art, but that doesn't mean you have to.  Promise.  Therapy is about talking and sharing what you're experiencing, but sometimes words can't quite describe what's happening.  For me, art is just another tool to help you explore what is going on and what you're feeling. It's not Art with a capital "A" and it has nothing to do with your ability to draw.  Honestly.  There are no grades in art therapy! 
It's about the opportunity to use different materials - pencils, pastels, markers, collage, clay - to create images that reflect your feelings and thoughts to aid in the healing process.
